We spoke with the Director of Timberwolf Films, Tyson Leith, on his experience shooting vertical video and how Wooden Camera and Creative Solutions accessories helped him achieve his vision for their latest project.
Timberwolf Films Shoots Vertical Video with the Help of Wooden Camera Gear
Tell us a little about Timberwolf Films. What sort of projects do you usually work on?
"Timberwolf Films is a media production company based in New York City. We work with some amazing brands and businesses around the world to create engaging photo and video content."
“We have been using Wooden Camera gear for 3 years and it has provided nothing but quality, consistency, and reliability.”
Tell us about your recent vertical shoot. Who was it for, what was the subject matter? What gear did you use?
"We recently did a vertical shoot for JBL speakers to promote their latest Club One headphones. We used the Wooden Camera Mini Vertical Camera Bracket, the Wooden Camera Directors Monitor Cage V3, the Teradek Bolt 4K Wireless System, Wooden Camera RED Trigger Handle, Wooden Camera Zip Box Pro, Wooden Camera Zip Follow Focus, SmallHD Cine 7, and a SmallHD 702 Touch.
Knowing we would be going from location to location around NYC, we knew we could not rely on something cheap. We needed accessories that would be quick and reliable."
“The quick release system that we used on the vertical camera bracket allows us to change from widescreen to vertical shooting nearly instantly.“
"This became important when we needed to navigate the camera menus and make set up adjustments before switching back to vertical.
Although simple, we love the way Wooden Camera accessories build out and complete each of our rigs. Often, people will even stop us in the middle of the street to ask us questions about the accessories. As we sometimes find ourselves in unpredictable and uncontrollable situations on location, we have come to value all of the benefits of what Wooden Camera accessories provide."
